What is a DSC file?
DSC files have multiple uses, and Nikon Disc Information is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.
Nikon Disc Information File
Files with the .dsc file extension store information about photographs that have been taken with a Nikon Coolpix digital camera. These files are saved on the camera's memory card along with the corresponding image files.
DSC files do not contain any actual image data. Instead, they only contain information about the image that the file pertains to, so these files are usually relatively small in size.
